The stack of yellow chairs left in the void deck is proving to be useful again, this time to help me explain how to coordinate the hip movement to that of the fist.
The logic is simple – power comes from getting the body to move as one and also from being able to accelerate the joints internally using the 5-Count principle.
Here’s how not to do it :-
Okay, maybe my student is too tall for the chairs. That could affect his performance. Anyway, if the stack can’t get taller then one must go lower. Its just a coordination thing, not a combat exercise.
The right way to do it is by :-
a) Establish a base from which to tap the energy from the ground
b) Coordinate the movement of the joints
c) Pay attention to how the hip drives the fist

Finally, putting it together for a demo on how the power from hip-fist coordination looks like in a static demo :-
So that’s it – the key to coordinating the hip to the fist to generate power.
